Episode Summary

Love and Foosball
We dive right back into Jame's struggles with losing and Rebecca losing respect for him and his childish ways. James is still attracted to her but doesn't know if he should go all the way in fear of screwing it up.

Since James is so competitive, Dan decides to make a wager. Who can blow a bigger bubble? James attempts and gets not one bubble. Dan goes and ofcourse gets like 10 big bubbles out of one blow. James punishment? To run around the Real World bus naked.

Syrus received the next clue in their cellphone, it says something about kicking tricks at a college complex in Conn. Susie is the most excited out of the two teams cause it's her first mission.

They arrive to find 4 professional soccer players who help them learn the basic moves of soccer. James and Jamie seem to be the best so far. After practice they arrive at the mission site to find a inflatable ring where they will be playing "Human Foosball" where players will be attached to ropes that sting acoss the field and that will be their playing path. The catch is that the teams will not be Real World vs Road Rules, but 3 Real World and 3 Road Rules per team. First one to get 3 goals wins. James and Jamie are elected and they get to pick their teams.

Team Yellow-James, Christian, Rebecca, Julie, Emily, and Dan
Team Black-Jamie, Syrus, Kameelah, Laterrian, Michelle, and Susie

Laterrian scores the first goal for black followed by Kameelah scoring the second for the black team. Emily scores the first goal for yellow followed by Rebecca who scores the second goal for yellow. Score is tied 2-2. Rebecca comes through again and scores the winning goal for Team Yellow.

Now we find out what they win, each player is lined behind personalized tennis shoes. But the winning Yellow team has envelopes while the black team does not. They open the envelopes to find that each of them have won $1,000 cash.

Dan goes on to play matchmaker more and says a bunch of "sweet" stuff about James to Rebecca to hopefully sway her into investing more into the relationship between the two. Rebecca wonders if this is something she is really interested in pursuing.

We later wonder what happened behind closed doors as James is found in a hotel bed half naked with Rebecca in the shower.

We end with scenes of Rebecca and James cuddling and having fun all set to romantic music.moreless
